't help if you caricature. the fiscal cliff a deal/deal and joe biden. we got less than we wanted. i would have liked to have based taxes on people making $300,000 a year. but we had 85 republicans for that. on the hurricane, that was a very bipartisan deal in the senate and the notion that we were going to peel off a few, that shouldn't be partisan at all. after spending, i agree. here's the problem. the biggest increase in spending in the last, in this century has been a military spending. unpaid for in iraq, an unnecessary war. afghanistan, military spending else where. i very much want to cut spending but people who want to exempt the military from spending cuts. >> you have to have the last word on that. >> every penny to the pentagon and every penny the government spends, we still borrow $300 billion a year and his party has to come to grips with that. >> gentlemen, as you step aside, we might see you temporarily in the united states senate and see how that plays out in massachusetts. hopefully, hopefully in the spirit -- >> senator frank, that would be kind of interesting for a few

:55 this morning. >> in a little over an hour from now, vice president joe biden will take his oath of office. we'll, of course, take you there live. all day long cnn will bring you the ceremonies, the concerts, the celebrations and, of course, break down the political and historical context of this very special day. but, first, this morning we want to bring you up to speed on this hostage situation in algeria. this morning, the crisis at a natural gas plant is aapparently over and state department says at least one american man is dead, but we still have so many questions about this, including exactly how many people are still missing. let us tell you what we do know right now. the algerian ministry said it launched a second assault yesterday that ended the three-day standoff. the interior ministry says almost 700 algerian hostages have been freed, along with 107 foreigners. but at least 23 hostages are dead, including one americancit. so are dozens of islamist militants. joining us now barbara starr. barbara, good morning to you. i know you have been following this and working this story. first
loan guarantee. e-mail specifically for the vice president joe biden's involvement in the 1.6 billion grant. it's for the proposed solar project in the desert in southern california. an e-mail from brightsource energy subcontractor, dated december 2, 2000, said joe biden met weekly with energy secretary steven chu to discuss the energy department loan guaranty. burner tuning, who was joe biden's chief of staff when he was a senator in the senate was a principal vice president and manager of back till. in an inner -- e-mail to john ward at december 3, 2009, he wrote quote calls are in to biden's staff and though the approaching a political affairs office at the white house tomorrow as well. of the project could benefit two democratic senators and whose races will be tough next year. barbara boxer of california, and majority leader senator reid from nevada. both won reelection in 2010. over a year later, in marc march 2011, brightsource still have no loan. brightsource ceo said in an e-mail to jonathan silver, who was an executive director of the energy department's loan guarantee progr
and that because of joe biden, because of michael bloomberg, because of former congressman gabrielle giffords that there is a possibility of doing something now or is it simply the possibility of beginning the conversation? >> the it seems like it was the beginning of a conversation that would end in failure even two, three weeks back. if you talked to people that were inside the white house and working with joe biden i don't think there was a lot of hope that they thought they could ever get through an assault weapon ban in the house and the senate. for actually, though, it's not been michael bloomberg's actions over the past several weeks or gabrielle giffords or joe biden's that i think has made the biggest difference. i think the reason why the political landscape is moving as quickly as it is on this issue and why the polls are moving is because the abhorrent behavior of the national rifle association and their reaction not only to newtown but wayne lapierre's press conference, the news of the past few days of a commercial that actually talked about the president's own children and takes
of like a good marriage, who takes out the garbage. well, he has joe biden to deal with the people he doesn't want to deal with, right? >> if we look back at the end of the next year, we'll get an answer to that. kuz he get a grand bargain, significant immigration through, serious gun reform through. it's too early to judge. we don't know whether -- the republicans are parading through here at cnn today, they're all saying how hyper partisan he now feels to them. the country doesn't see that. he has a lot of people, as vin will tell you, a lot of people rallying, love what he's doing. >> it's remarkable too, because remember the line that was so memorable that brought -- rocketed barack obama to the forefront of the american consciousness was his 2004 speech at the democratic national convention, that there are no red states no blue states, this is the united states of america. when you think of his inaugural address, there wasn't one line that crystallized or captured the nation. from a republican perspective it would be wonderful to hear some sort of harkening of tone, some kind of

president joe biden will be sworn in from the naval observatory, the official residence of the vice president. the inaugural committee released a web video as the president reflected on what is next for him and his administration. [video clip] >> i started public servants working in communities. throughout my career, what has always given me energy, hope is that good and decent and resilience and strong the american people are. the theme of this year's inauguration is our people, our future. i believe that when our people are succeeding, when they have the tools they need to get a grade education, get a good job, look after their kids, have some basic security, that there is nothing that can stop america. two figures i admire probably more than anybody in american history is dr. king and president lincoln. for me to have the opportunity to use the bible they used on the 105th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation and the 50th anniversary of the march on washington is fitting. their actions and the movement they represent are the only reason that it is possible for me to be in
come to the table and be part of a comprehensive package. i'm sure joe biden will accept them and joe manchin will accept them and conservatives will accept them to come to the table. i'm sure their membership wants them to do it, not the survivalists or gun manufacturers who have made millions of dollars off the death of 6 and 7 year-olds, the truth. it's not too late. if they keep their feet in cement, they're going to be run over, not by joe biden, but these polls show, by middle america, by gun owners, by people that want to protect their children when they're at school, they want to protect their children at shopping malls, want to protect their children when they're in church, protect their children at movie theaters. this is middle america coming after you, nra, not a politician. >> the president is at the forefront and we have to lot to go through. president obama is reviewing a list of gun control items from joe biden. background checks and limits on assault and ammunition. during the-yesterday, problem talks about it. >> those that apologize gun control or measures have a pr

spooked by something that happened 20 years ago. don't forget, joe biden who was running this was in the middle of that fight, then, too as a senator. so democrats are completely spooked by the gun issue. that's not going to change. what they have to be convinced of is that public opinion has shifted because of newtown and that there are some of these fights, not all of them, some of these fights that they can win. i mean, republicans are worried if they vote for some of these issues, they are going to be primaried by more conservative republicans. democrats understand that this may be an opportunity. >> gloria borger, thanks so much for that. >> sure. >>> you're about to hear oprah winfrey's reaction to lance armstrong's admission that he's a cheater. >>> later, does another member of the clinton family have political ambitions?
